AQL – Components are inspected based on an acceptable quality level (typically 1% AQL) per MIL STD 105-D.
AOI 100% INSP – Components with this quality level are 100% inspected by automated equipment for visual defect and electrical compliance during final packaging.
100% V/V – Components of this quality level are manufactured and verified by an operator to be in compliance visually, according to workmanship standards and for electrical performance (Ohmic value, dB value etc.) per the component specification.
